Short version of Porter's 1929 FIFTY MILLION FRENCHMEN

Cole Porter's 1929 Broadway musical, FIFTY MILLION FRENCHMEN, was short on plot but long on songs. It was directed by Monty Woolley, ran for 254 performances and contained 18 songs. Five of these were used in the 1934 Vitaphone short, PAREE, PAREE. The simplistic plot is quickly told in the 21 minute time frame and along the way we get PAREE, WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME?, YOU DON'T KNOW PAREE (orchestral), YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME, YOU'VE GOT THAT THING and FIND ME A PRIMITIVE MAN, as well as an Apache Dance, performed by the Climas.

The stage characters of Violet and May are combined into the one Violet character, comically played by Billie Leonard. The supporting couple, Michael and Joyce, are dropped. Bob Hope breezily plays Peter Forbes and Dorothy Stone sings and dances well as his leading lady, Lulu Carroll.

It's short, delightful and so packed with good songs that it quickly proves the point that "they don't write em like that anymore." A Cole Porter treat - included as a special feature on the SILK STOCKINGS DVD.
